November 27, 2023 by No Comments

NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal’s fast-casual fried chicken concept, Big Chicken, is set to debut in Chattanooga with two locations, marking its first foray into Tennessee. O’Neal announced the signing of two leases back in August.

The first Chattanooga outpost will be situated at 410 Broad Street, while the second location will reside at 5118 Hixson Pike in Hixson. Both restaurants are slated to open their doors next month. This expansion is part of a broader plan to establish 10 Big Chicken restaurants across Tennessee, including Nashville and Knoxville. Big Chicken, founded in 2018, has already established a presence in several states nationwide.

The restaurant’s menu features an array of tempting offerings, including its signature Big Chicken Sandwich, sweet potato waffle fries, Lucille’s Mac n’ Cheese, delectable shakes, and oversized cookies. Diners can anticipate indulging in these culinary delights when both Chattanooga locations open their doors next month.

The chain specializes in tasty chicken sandwiches, tenders, and fries, with a few unique menu items inspired by Shaq himself. Big Chicken has been expanding rapidly across the country, with plans to open several locations in different states, including Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Michigan. The restaurant’s brand is all about Shaq’s larger-than-life personality and his love for food and fun.
